ZoneOffset ofHoursMinutesSeconds(int, int, int) method in Java with Examples

The ofHoursMinutesSeconds(int, int, int) method of ZoneOffset Class in java.time package is used to obtain an instance of ZoneOffset using the offset in hours, minutes and seconds passed as the parameter. This method takes the hours, minutes and seconds as parameter in the form of int and converts it into the ZoneOffset.

Syntax:

public static ZoneOffset
  ofHoursMinutesSeconds(int hours, 
                        int minutes,  
                        int seconds)

Parameters: This method accepts 3 parameters:



  • hours: which is int hours to be converted into an ZoneOffset instance. Its range is +18 to -18
  • minutes: which is int minutes to be converted into an ZoneOffset instance. Its range is -59 to +59
  • seconds: which is int seconds to be converted into an ZoneOffset instance. Its range is -59 to +59

Return Value: This method returns a ZoneOffset instance parsed from the specified hours, minutes and seconds.
